‘So to have a topical treatment that works in patients for whom other topicals have failed is absolutely fantastic.
I would not use it in severe cases where most of the body is covered in lesions because it is a three-part treatment and this makes it impractical.
‘But in cases of plaque psoriasis with symptoms ranging from mild to moderate – which is about 80 per cent of all cases – then I would recommend Soratinex.
Sets, expected to last patients with mild to moderate symptoms between one and three months, retail at £76.50 for small and £121.05 for large.
According to Professor Chu, this compares favourably with traditional hospital-based treatments for severe psoriasis such as such as Ciclosporine, which can cost around £2,000 a year, Methotrexate from £2-300 a year and biologics (cellular treatments grown in the lab) for the most severe cases, which can cost up to £14,000 a year.
In eight earlier trials involving more than 2,000 patients in Europe, that level of success was achieved in 85 per cent of cases.
